itel A56 vs itel S15: Where The S15 Gains The Edge

The itel S15 boasts a better display with a higher screen resolution, allowing users enjoy better image quality and detail. This simply means you get to enjoy your favourite activities on a larger display with sharper, clearer graphics.

If you are one who enjoys taking pictures (and selfies), then this smartphone should entice you. Its dual rear camera setup lets you capture the best moments while on the go, with a selfie camera (that boasts a 16MP sensor) that trumps its rival when it comes to video calls and selfies.

The itel S15 also possesses more storage than its counterpart, boasting 128GB of external storage that supports its 16GB internal memory. It offers the same RAM as its counterpart but is slightly more expensive than the itel S15 costing an extra ₦2,500.

itel A56 vs itel S15: Which Should You Opt For?

Both devices have good processors with similar speeds, offer 2G/3G network connectivity, and offer the same RAM storage. The itel A56 is a slightly cheaper option and has some decent specs to offer you.

However, the itel S15 offers a better photography experience, an improved display quality, and more storage space than the A56. Although it offers an inferior battery when compared to its sibling device, its other specifications and features see it come out on top in this match-up.

It is also slightly more expensive than the S15, but with a margin of ₦2,500, I’d advise you to go for this device if you had a spending cap of ₦25,000 and you had these two options on your table.
